Prime Video app sets Apple TV download record

Prime Video app sets Apple TV download record

Amazon's much awaited video streaming app, Amazon Prime Video made available to the Apple TV platform and has become the most downloaded Apple TV app in just one week.

Prime members in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria and Japan can use the app to watch videos purchased or rented from Amazon.

The arrival of Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV ended a long, unbecoming stand-off between the two firms.

How many times the app has actually been downloaded from the Apple TV App Store leading it to break the record has not been reported.

Microsoft violently rips Google Chrome Installer from the Windows Store
Since Google has never been a supporter of Windows Store, it was quite surprising to see Chrome installer on the Microsoft Store. In short, Google would have to completely remake Chrome specifically for Windows.

If we talk more about Amazon's Prime Video app, the app was released for Apple TV's fourth generation and fifth generation earlier this month.

Despite the thawing of tensions, Amazon is yet to return the Apple TV set-top box to its shelves, but we have seen it appear in swiftly-deleted listings. "The app arrives just in time for the highly anticipated new season of The Grand Tour, which launches on December 8, and Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will have the exceptional viewing experience of 4K HDR".

During its iPhone launch event in September, Apple finally announced a 4K version of the device, which also includes HDR compatibility. The app is still on the top of the list in the regions where it is available including the United States.

The company said in a statement to "Prime Video has been a hit with Apple TV customers around the world - it had the most first-week downloads of any app in the history of tvOS". The app allows Apple TV users to find Amazon content using the Apple TV App, Siri Remote and universal search in select countries.
